Instructions

  1. 1

    Chain four, then join with a slip stitch to form a ring. Chain six, then double crochet in the ring and chain three. Double crochet in the ring again, and chain three again. Do this two more times. Join with a slip stitch to the third stitch in the original chain six. This creates five petals.

  2. 2

    Slip stitch into the first petal opening, then chain one. In the same first petal, single crochet, then half-double crochet, three-double crochet, half-double crochet and single crochet. Repeat these stitches in the remaining four petals. Join with a slip stitch in the first single crochet.

  3. 3

    Chain six. Back-post double crochet around the centre of the double crochet from Step 1, then chain five. Do this three more times, then join with a slip stitch to the first chain in this row.

  4. 4

    Slip stitch into the first petal, then chain one. In each petal, do one single crochet, one half-double crochet, five double crochets, one half-double crochet and one single crochet. Join with a slip stitch in the beginning single crochet.

  5. 5

    Chain eight. Back-post double crochet around the single crochet from Step 3, then chain seven. Do this three more times in the single crochets of Step 3. Join with a slip stitch in the beginning chain of this row.

  6. 6

    Slip stitch in the first petal and chain one. In each petal, do one single crochet, one half-double crochet, seven double crochets, one half-double crochet and one single crochet. Join with a slip stitch to the first chain one. Fasten off and weave in the loose end of the yarn. Use a button in the centre of the flower when fastening to your crocheted item.
